- Euro suffered losses today against the US dollar, and even positive releases in the Euro Area failed to help the shared currency.
- EURUSD broke a support trend line on the hourly chart to open the doors for more losses in the near term.
- Euro Area Gross Domestic Product released by the Eurostat managed to rise by 0.3% in Q4 2015, which was above the forecast of 0%.
- German Gross Domestic Product released by the Statistisches Bundesamt Deutschland came in line with the market expectation and rose 0.3% in Q4 2015.
The EURUSD pair struggled throughout the day, and declined. There was a major resistance near the 1.1380 level where sellers stepped in and ignited a downside move. The pair moved below the 50 hourly simple moving average, and looks set for a close below the 100 hourly simple moving average.
Moreover, the pair just broke a support trend line on the hourly chart, and if there is a close below it, then a move towards the 200 hourly simple moving average is possible.
On the upside, the broken trend line may act as a resistance moving ahead.
